Have a visit to Taft. In the 15th century, Taft was known for its pleasant climate, water, pomegranates, and grapes. Taft was home to Sufi poet Shah Nimatullah Wali in the 15th century. Following the Iranian Constitutional Revolution of 1906, a rebellion broke out in Taft, led by Mohammad Bana, who with his armed bandits briefly took over the government seat in Yazd. The rebellion was crushed in 1911 and Bana fled back to Taft. Overnight in Yazd.
Drive to Chack Chack and Kharanaq and have a visit. The Pir-e-Sabz fire temple forms the main focus of interest at Chak Chak. Source of the drops of water after which this pilgrimage site is named, the temple is reached via 230 steps and it is worth making the ascent to appreciate the isolation that marks this spot. The entrance of the cave, where an eternal flame is kept alight, is decorated with a brass door embossed with the likeness of Zoroaster. The whole site is off limits during the annual festival in June. The all-but-deserted mud-brick village of Kharanaq (Kharanagh) is crumbling back into the valley out of which it emerged over 1000 years ago. What remains in this ghost town, 70km north of Yazd, is a Qajar-era mosque, a cylindrical 17th-century shaking minaret and a caravanserai (closed at the time of research), near the entrance of the village. Although these structures have been restored, many of the surrounding buildings are in various states of ruin so it's helpful to have a guide who can navigate a safe pathway to the highlights. Overnight in Yazd.
Drive from Kharanaq towards Bayazeh. Bayazeh had been known as the cultural and scientific center of this part of the desert. Many greats and scientists have lived there. An ancient old castle (remaining from the Sasanian empire or before), mosques, houses, covered narrow alleys, and a qanat, are sites that attract tourists. Overnight in Bayazeh.
Have a visit to the Jandaq sightseeing and Mesr desert. What do you recall when you hear “Mesr”? The Arabic name of Egypt, a country in North Africa? Nile River, Pyramids, Sphinx, and Pharaohs? You are right. But you would be surprised to know, there’s another Mesr too, but thousands of kilometers away from current Egypt, and tens of kilometers away from any crowded city. A small island in the sand, somewhere in the heart of Iran’s central desert, Mesr is the name of an Iranian village in Khur and Biabanak county, close to the city of Naein which is famous for agricultural production in the area. Overnight in Mesr Village.
